Bring Your Horse with You to Equine Affaire and Ride With The Best
What Is Ride With The Best?
Though the training clinics presented during the four days of the 2013 Equine Affaire were conducted to educate horse enthusiasts watching from the stands, more than 50 clinics featured at the event also offered unique opportunities for selected riders and horses to receive individual instruction and training from nationally-recognized industry professionals to whom access may not otherwise have been available.
